Enforcement, and Education—has been the model of almost ail cities in safety campaigns of vaVtous types, and at present is the theme of a national assault on traffic mortality. ;its development has brought Milwaukee recognition from the National Safety council, the United States chamber of commerce, the American Public Health association alid the National Fire Waste council as the "safest city." In 1912, when the automobile's value beyond the field of pleasure ha'd been untested, railroads were suffering tremendous losses both In actual money and in good will and prestige through Injuries and.Ueath. Hi that year 25 persons, including representatives of the government, tlie Red Cross and industry, met Irtre In what was known as the first cooperative safety congress. /; Meeting Brought Organization. .That first meeting led to the for- irjfiUon in New York City the next ypir of the National Council for Industrial Safety. The trlple-E pattern was outlined and Milwaukee began piloting it into effect. .By.'1915, according to Clarence 3 Mlith, manager of the safety division of !the Milwaukee association of com- nv?rce; the mass production industries', faced the same situation rail- r&fds did three years earlier. The association of commerce started a p'ui'ely local movement for safety in the shops. lii this campaign, the first E, en' ginflering, was placed in the safety oroto of the state industrial coriv nilsislbn. Rules for the conduct o slwtJS were set down, and certall tyues of machinery were equipped wfth ..guards to reduce accidents EfiUiktKm was effected through scHpbling plant supervising foremen cataafole of . teaching elements o safety to men under them. ;*EXAS IMPROVES ROADS 'rJALLAS, May- 30. — The Texa highway department has improve: 6,000. miles of highway in prepara tipn-for the $25,000,000 Texas Cen Wiiiilal exposition which opens her June 6. the classified ads todar. -^ ,-*~s -•; •&>• <> V " *"*?;V>># < J: "'• - O"' 1 * »£#*> "«H N ,-'^ V.-X-N.-X^'^ -%'^'^ mm PIST EXPEDITIONS ALL OVER EARTH DIGGING IN RUINS Buffalo Hunter DALLAS, May 29.—The most gorgeous and expensive key ever manu- actured solid gold and inlaid with diamonds and precious stones from he different countries of the world, will be used by Secretary of Com- nerce David C.

LLANO, May 30, (IP)— The little cattle-town of Llano, which has :erhaps, produced more polo players vnd mounts than any place of its size in Texas, saw the last of Its well-known poloists eastward bound ast week for the summer season York Ratltf f, who has • taken a string of polo ponies east for the past nine years, has gone to Darien, 3onn, where he, will be playin?- managcr of the Ox Ridge polo club for the third consecutive year. Rutliff. who prefers to be known as a trainer and dealer rather than player, recently had his handicap raised from one "goal to two. He shipped 1C ponies which had been purchased from in and around the Llano ranch country and finished in San Antonio during the spring polo season. Rube Williams, Llano's famous cowboy poloist, has returned to Long Island and New Jersey and, with his senior associate, George Miller, took some 60 ponies from their training grounds in San Antonio. Cecil Smith, Texas' . top-ranking player and the other member of the famous Llano cowboy pair, is playing in England this summer with C. B. Wrightsman of Houston. The two took a string of 31 top ponies to England. Smith, said to be one of the hardest men in polo to mount, is better mounted this year than at any time in his sensational career, his friends say. Tom Mather and Carl ; Crawforcl, other well-known Texas polists, are also in England for the summer sea- in. Lee Downs of Brady has left for Long Island with six thoroughly finished mounts, which he has been training in San Antonio for the past year. He is associated with Semp Russ, a well known San Antonio poloist, who will join him next month. Jack Semons, who has been training in 'San Antonio for the past six months, shipped 17 ponies, to his home in Manchester, Mass., for the season. The horses were purchased around San Antonio and in South Texas. Semons will be on Long Island later in the season. _ Proof of LOWER OPERATING COST Quiet • Unseen Trouble-free Proof of SAFER FOOD PROTECTION IT CUTS CURRENT COST TO THE BONE The new Frigidaire's spectacular cold- making unit gives more cold for much less current cost, because of outstanding design with only three moving parts!

There is a constant peering forward into the future and a constant looking back into the past. In one way, here is a kinship between the two curiosities because, in examining archeological remains, there always is a deal of soeculation as to where the people who left them are now. This, in a sense, is looking, with intense curiosity, both ways. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of years ago, there were antiquaries, but it is doubtful whether there ever were so many busy on earth as there now am. From one end of the world to the other, expeditions are unearthing the past. Recently, thers have been some discoveries which can be interestingly grouped as they go backward in long stiides The totems of the North American Indians have long been familiar, but attention has recently turned on a group not so well known and archeologists are studying it with keen interest. In the Albert Bay region of British Columbia are to be found some especially fascinating modern totems That is to say they are modern in that some of them are only about two centuiies old. They display the strangest combination cf Chrlstiai practices and the pagan practices of totemism. For example, one finds tombstones with Christian inscription, not at all unlike those svhich an to be found in many an America) churchyard of 200 or less years ago but, beside them also stand tolen poles as memorials of the sunn buried person. No chance is takei as between the faiths. In some cases Christian symbols have been placet on pagan totem poles for Ui2 satin reason. In this region, some extra ordinarily curious pales have bcei found suggesting that moderi American cartoonists and sketch ers of funny pictures must hav wandered that way. The crudel carved faces have one expressio one way and, if turned upside dowi have a totally different expressioi Now we move back two or thre hundred years and find the Eve sham Psalter, A steward of the Eai of Dalhousie was doing sprin house-cleaning or something in on of the Scots castles of the Ea when he came upon the Psalter, bore the bccknlate of the ninth Ea: but that was only in seventeen .seventy-something. Evidence of tl; book itself shows that it was mad at the Abbey of Evesham betwse 1248 and 12G2. There is evidence, ,.. B. Lovctt, who first came io [he Panhandle with a bund of buffalo hunters in 187(5, when he was 18 years old, is pictured here as lie looked then. The Imffalo liuntcrs had headquarters at Fort Elliott, near old Molieetie. Mr. Lovt-tt relumed to the Panhandle several years later to make his home, and Mrs. Lovetl joined him in 18X5. that the Evcsruun Psalter once bti- ongcd to Richaid. Earl of Cornwall, 'brother to Henry III and; Uncle to Edward I. Evesliiim Psal'.cr A psalter, of course, ii> a book of psalms. The most famous one is the Utttrell Psalter. Some idea of th? value placed on such items is given in the fact that, in 1929. the Luttrell Psalter was sold at auction for $150.000. it being purchased by the British Government. Fancy finding something of that value in one's garret—which is just what has happened in connection with the Evcshnm Ps-aRei I The latter is beautifully illuminated, the principal page being a depiction of the Crucifixion. Th"ii there is another page showing » head of Christ in much the sumi- iimmu>r revealed by the Thirteenth Century painters. Full page illnstni- ticiw ore mingled with the piux.s of text and every paragraph has its illuminated initial letter. Thc-n- is Saul crdering Doeg to sluy the unbelieving priests and here is Jonah being swallowed by the whale. The next stride is quite a Ions one. There recently has been found at Burnberg in Upper Austria a wine flagon which archeologiKts say dates from the Fifth Century before Christ. It belongs to the Celtic cultuie in art and tells a graphic story of the state of civilization in Europe at that period—a civilization which, by the; way, was practically lost during later centuries. The flagon stands a little more than 18 inches, rising like a va':o, with a sweeping outward curve from | its narrow base, then cutting sharply in and being surmounted by a vertical section fining out into a .spout. Thcie are suggestions of Grecian vase forms in its lines on the one hand but. on the other, suggestions of the Chinese in a part of the decoration. There is a handle and—and this is regarded as being of special cultural interest—its decoration furnishes a distinct prototype of the gothic. Strange creatures which call to mind the gargoyles which later wcie usc-d in grotesque gothic decorations adorn the upper part of the handle. The type of mind, which created the gargoyles of Notre Dams was in existence in the s-.ams part of the world more than four centuries before Christ, this flagon proves. Tcmb cf Hemaka Now comes the longest stride of all. The earliest known tomb in all Egyptology has iccently been discovered in an ancient cemetery nsar the step Pyramid at Sakknra. It dates from 3500 B. C. which, of course, makes the other finds referred to seem almost like this morning's happenings. Walter B. Emery, attached to the Egyptian Department of Antiquities, made the discovery. The tomb was that of Hemnka. who was Grand Vizier to a Kins of the First Dynasty. The tomb was found Poms 25 feet below the surface. Allhousi hewn frcm the solid rock, it is oi immense proportions. Surrounding i the central burial vault arc no less than 42 chambers. They were devoted to storage of special articles .such as fruit, vegetables, meat, anc grain. One cf these chnmbeis wn« ;i wine cellar for the 1 dead vizier. It wns found to contain 2000 large jnrs, each ctirpfully sealed. The; vizier must have had ssmcthinK in Die way oi a reputation. There seems to have been enough wine placed -there for him to serve N? 1 . 1 . Y&rk on New Year's Eve. A great many works of art also ippeared, astonishing works for the jsricd. Discs of yellow and white imestone are there inlayed with alabaster, some in conventional de- :iRiis. some showing hunting-and othnr scenes. Arrows 'and iVory- lep.ded spears were found ftnd various toools: A remaikable find, so 'ireheologosists s&y, was a flax fop'e, still there after these thousands 6f long years. The variety of objects suggests that the Egyptians felt the dead vizier might turn "to-almost any pursuit. There Is a tfooden rlekle'set with sharp flint teeth and an adz. Also there are sacrificial knives, shaped like scimitars, made of flint and very shaip. The burying of such objects with a dead mnn sterns curious to the modern. But it should be noted that many Egyptian tombs bear inscriptions reading, in effect: "You are not dead. You have merely moved somewhere else." Out of honor or friendship, then, all- these trappings were left with what we, in these days, wculd call the dead.- SUREST SIGN The surest sign that business is headed for permanent recovery is the steady increase in the two "heavy goods" industries—steel and building—said Harlow M. Curtice, president of the Buick Motor Car company, in the Memphis Press- Scimitar. Mr. Curtice, speaking enthusiastically on the prospects in his own industry, added that "we can .see nothing on the horizon which will interrupt this steady upward progress, and the surest indication that the progress is on a solid foundation is the recovery of steel and building."
